H-1B1 Visa for Chile and Singapore

H-1B1 Visa is valid for up to 18 months.

I-94 at entry is 12 months.

Can be renewed indefinitely in 1 year increments.

NOT Dual Intent

Apply at the Embassy with LCA, Petition letter, Diplomas, transcripts, work exp. letters, academic evaluation.

H-1B1 nonimmigrants will be included in the list of nonimmigrants who are authorized for employment incident to status with a specific employer.

These nonimmigrants are allowed to work for the sponsoring employer without having to separately apply for employment authorization.

Continued employment is authorized with the same employer for up to 240 days for H-1B1 and principal E-3 nonimmigrants whose status has expired while their employer’s timely filed request for an extension of stay remains pending.

I-9 Notes

If an employer has timely filed an extension of stay for its H-1B1nonimmigrant employee, the employer should write “240-Day Ext” and the date the employer submitted the Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, or Form I-129CW petition to USCIS in Section 2.

The employer must reverify the employee’s employment authorization in Section 3 once a decision is received on the request for an extension of stay or by the end of the 240-day period, whichever comes first.
